We do our best to eat as healthy as we can, but every once and a while we enjoy a treat day and savor some off-the-good-list ingredients, like butter. We had a treat day recently and decided to make some hand-made samosas that call for butter, flour and a fry. They knocked our socks off! Enjoy our carrot and bean samosa recipe below!
